Introducing the Announcements Thread!

by Latoya Peterson

After much discussion, Carmen and I have decided to start an announcements thread that will run every Friday.

The thread will serve two purposes:

If you are a promoter/publicist/event coordinator, please send us information about your event (preferably with an event flyer) to team@racialicious.com before noon on Thursdays. Please include “Announcements Thread – ____” in the subject line.

If you are a reader and would like to highlight specific blog posts you have written or events that you are attending, please feel free to leave a message in the comments section.

Please note: Racialicious reserves the right to refuse any promotions/delete any comments that we deem are not a good fit for this site or for our audience.

And now…
